Exchange – Issue 8

June 23rd 2017

Looking to the Local

The latest edition of our exclusive supporters’ magazine considers the role of ‘the local’ in Welsh public policy.

An eclectic mix of contributors look at how place-based initiatives have worked in Wales, as well as what should be done differently. And we couldn’t ignore the political backdrop while we were compiling this issue – we’ve included features on both the local and general elections.

This issue includes:

  • Victoria Winckler (Bevan Foundation) on how decision makers are learning to love ‘the local’.
  • Jess Blair (ERS Cymru) looks at the impact of higher youth turnout at the 2017 general election.
  • Editor of the Caerphilly Observer, Richard Gurner, on how local media in Wales can find its way out of a black hole.
  • Mike Hawking (Joseph Rowntree Foundation) considers how Wales can develop an inclusive approach to city deals.
  • Ben Cottam (FSB Wales) sets out how business rates in Wales should be overhauled.
  • as well as the latest news, publications and events from the Bevan Foundation and our subscribers.
